Excellent book, not a romance.

I really did love this book. It was heartbreaking and intriguing and outright sad.

Rainy details through years of abuse, drugs, bad life choices, trauma and loss to a psychologist assigned to assess her in a murder investigation.

This books is a lot of things... but not a love story. I’m not mad about it, I was sucked in from the get-go and couldn’t stop listening. I just wish it had been categorized better.

Narration is, of course, spot on.

Most incredible mind f*ck! Amazing performance

OMG!!!!! This was the best mind f*ck I’ve ever experienced! I was not expecting THIS story. I don’t mean the abuse and everything the h went through, but the absolute most unique and incredible dark romance I’ve ever read/listened to. Now, not to brag (totally to brag) I can anticipate and predict the outcome and ending of every story/movie/show at about a 98% accuracy rate. It’s so rare that I’m wrong. People love/hate watching movies with me because part of them is dying to ask me what I think will happen who I think did it and the other half doesn’t want the spoiler. With that being said, I predicted this outcome BUT 1. It took me a while and 2. even though I was anticipating it I was still BLOWN TF away. Now, how in the actual f*ck can an author write a story/ending so stellar that even if you’re anticipating it, it still completely shocks you. I think it’s because, while I had predicted it, I still thought I was completely wrong because there’s just no way an author could pull that off and it not be completely lame….well she did it. I’m her newest biggest fan.

I put off buying this one for a while. I saw it on so many GR lists when I searched for specific plot lines and I kept reviewing it and putting it on my wish list so I remembered to circle back to it at some point if I was in a book slump and couldn’t find anything that caught my attention more. The synopsis doesn’t give you a lot to go on. It’s just enough to sound like something you maaaaay like, but not exciting enough to really grab you and I can’t even tell you what a brilliant choice that was. It makes it all the more phenomenal because the beauty of this story is the expectation that out of all the endless possibilities on how it’d end…it wouldn’t end like this.

In summation BUY THIS BOOK! You will not regret it if you’re into dark rom. It’s brilliant, unique, sexy, and just everything!!!

The performance was incredible. Couldn’t have had better actors. They both did an incredible job and brought this story to life. I hate when an incredible story has terrible narrator’s. it’s so much worse with a good book than a bad book because you know what it COULD have been. This is the antithesis of that. They matched the perfect narrator’s to this story and they pulled it off incredibly.

Buy this book. You’re welcome. I’m off to check out more of this authors stuff because, like every single human with a penis who’s ever met our heroine here…I’m hooked after 1 taste.

Loved! It!!

I know this book has been out for a while, but it came across as a suggestion since I'm a HUGE Jason Clarke fan. And once again, he did not disappoint. But even better, neither did any of the other elements of the book. The story line kept you listening until the plot line twist (poor Justin) and Ms. Dioro was fantastic as the female narrator. Definitely worth the credit!

Amazing!

From the moment I started this audiobook I could not put It down. In the 200+ books I e listened to over the past 6 months this was hands down the most riveting and engaging book I've heard thus far

Lily White has become my favorite author because the way she weaves a story and her writing style is unparalleled.

Awesome job. 1000% Worth the credit.

Depressing

I’m not really sure how to describe this book. After seeing the reviews for this book, I decided to give it a try. Basically it’s a sad, depressing story that you wonder why you are listening to something so sad. 3/4 of the book is nothing but abuse. You keep listening, because it sucks you in to know how it ends. I kinda figured out the ending and I don’t consider it an HEA. It’s super dark and well I can’t say much more, cause I don’t want to spoil anything. Someone said something in a review and it kinda ruined it because I then knew something was going to happen. Anyway, the narration is amazing, Jason Clark is one of my favorite narrators. Rose is a new narrator and did an amazing job as well.

Love the narration!

The narrators brought this to life. Even though they were absolutely amazing, the story itself gave me mixed feelings.
It’s not a romance book but it still started out great, but then w/ a few hrs left till the end I had to speed it up drastically because it became so repetitive. The same abuse kept happening over and over and I was bored of it by that point. There wasn’t anything in this book other than abuse. We don’t get any character development and the plot never goes anywhere. The entire story is her being abused. I kept waiting for something else to happen. Each chapter hoping this would be the one w/ a change up but then, nope not yet. With that said it was written well and kept me very interested in the first half. I can see why people love it. So this book is hard to review.

Wow what a book

I don’t write many reviews but this book is worthy of one. This was my first book by Lily White and I hope there are more that compare to this book. The story is so unique,dark and a little twisted. If your looking for something a little different I would definitely use a credit on this book. Storyline was amazing and the narration really brought it to life. A+++++

Seriously the most trigger filled book


I liked the relationship that Allison and Cory ended up reaching. I thought the suspense brought on by her exboyfriend, Drew, caused a bit of an extreme reaction from her. And I felt like a lot of the book was spend describing little details of rooms or outfits and less time developing characters or explaining connections. I listened to the audiobook which was narrated by Stacy Hinkle, who was underwhelming.

⭐️DELICIOUSLY⭐️DARK⭐️AND⭐️TWISTED⭐️

This was a first for me from this writer, but absolutely will not be the last!!!!
WARNING , not for the faint of heart OR sexually shy.
So well written and expertly twisted it very well could have been ripped from headline news!!
When a talented writer is paired with award worthy narrators...........well get the book it’s that good!!!!!

A little dark and disturbing!!

Very different listen. Still not sure I liked it due to subject matter. Jason Clarke has a very different and interesting role. He's been narrating some very different audibles with unpredictable endings like this one. I couldn't rate this one any higher..I wanted to because of Jason and his sexy voice but this one was too much for me. Mixed reviews and mixed tastes. Definitely unexpected ending and a little sad.
